Any boaters in Colorado Springs
I had to leave the promised land (Boulder) and move to Colorado Springs this winter. Are there any boaters in the Springs who want to share some rides to any of the front range creeks or Arkansas?

Absolutely. We also have pool sessions right now. Check out
Not sure about Boulder being the promised land but depending on your religous/political persuasion you may be in for quite a shock. :D

Looks awesome, thanks for the link. I will plan on attending the club meeting next week.

Yes, the COS has been a shock. By promised the land I meant quick access to the creeks and mountains.

Well I was just giving you a hard time. It has the springs beat in many ways. Dont forget the pool session on tue as well, I will be in the garden spot of Memphis next week so I will miss both.

Hey, bucklmd --
I feel like I left the promised land, too (Idaho)
No, seriously, good paddling there (and potatoes).
But I'll be making trips from the Springs AT LEAST once a week, to the Ark and anywhere else.
And ASAP, too - as soon as there's something class 4 or under, free of ice, I'm looking to go.
Shoot me a message if you're going.
What's up, gh? Sho-sho in a couple weeks? Maybe as a warmup for the gorge shortly after?

If I get to feeling better and the weather is nice I think I will do Parkdale this weekend. Interested?

I live in Woodland Park and like you am jonesin to boat. Last year I was paddelin the Bailey in late march with plenty of ice and low flows. I was also boating clear creek as low as 160 but 200 cfs is a pretty good low flow for black rock. Bear creek out of Morrison flows early as well. Keep looking at this site and you will quickly learn what is flowing as soon as it is possible to bash down. The big flows come in may.

Hey, gh. Wassup, bro?
I'll go this weekend. Do you have beta? Such as, is Parkdale ice-free for sure?
If so, and we get an air temp of 40 or better, I'm in.

Reports from the hommies are that Parkdale is clear. I have been sick as a dog and wont be able to go tomorrow. Shooting for the 20th at this point.

Id725 03-12-2004 01:08 PM

Sorry to hear you been sick, greg.
I was real sick bout two weeks ago - lasted nine days.
Anyway, I'll look to go somewhere this week, and I'll be ready for Parkdale next week - For the next couple months though, I can't paddle Saturdays - have to work. I can only go Sunday and Monday, for the most part.
